Thai-Mex Steak Tacos

Thai-Mex Steak Tacos ~ a zesty flavor combination of two regions, which are located no where near each other on the globe. Together we can take a flavor journey with simple ingredients designed to take us far, far away. Even if just for a few moments…


I’ve never been to Thailand (or anywhere in Asia) but I sure am fascinated by it’s flavorful cuisine. My entire family loves Thai food & we enjoy it often. Mexican food is on the table a few times a week (who could live without that!) Combining Mexican & Thai ingredients makes you feel well traveled, but better yet….well fed.

Let’s make some tacos!



Things have been so crazy busy this week. London has been a blast! It’s been a culinary & shopping whirlwind ~ I’m so excited to share all the tid bits with you soon. I’ve been introduced to many foods I had never tried. London chefs are seasoned pros coming up with all sorts of new inventions. I love the styling & presentation here too.


Ok. So back to Thai-Mex Steak Tacos. In this recipe succulent beef is seasoned & cooked with coconut milk & Thai red curry paste. In soft taco shells (gluten free corn or flour) layer in a crisp bed of lettuce, chunks of creamy avocado & diced green onion. I told you ~ blissful combo!


When you have a spare moment to dash to the kitchen, get busy & get cooking….these tacos are great as a main or serve one per person as a super tasty party appetizer.


My kids & hubs love these & crave them regularly. Don’t you love a total win for the entire family?! Makes life way easier.

    They look great and I was just out for dinner last night and I ordered some Tex-Mex Nachos and Skylar had Thai wraps. This is the best of all worlds! Pinned πŸ™‚

    What a fantastic fusion idea. Thai and Mexican are my favorite cuisines πŸ™‚ I might have to try my own variation with my favorite green curry paste.

    Excited to see photos of London!
